Samsung is said to have started mass production of the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3.
FPT reports this, citing sources within the company. Accordingly, the two new models should go on sale on August 27, 2021, and the presentation should take place on August 3.
According to rumours, Samsung is expected to produce 50,000 to 70,000 units of each model per day. These quantities are said to be far higher than those of the previous models, Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy Z Flip.
Allegedly, Samsung should want to produce a total of 7 million units of the two new models. Of the two predecessors, only 1 to 2 million devices are said to have been manufactured.
Samsung apparently expects that the new generation of its folding smartphones will sell better. The fold models are as big as a small tablet when opened, while the flip devices have the form factor of a flip phone.
